Gaza aid boat intercepted (Cynthia McKinney on board!)
YnetNews ^ | June 30, 2009 | Ali Waked, Anat Shalev

Small ferry carrying medical supplies that set sail from Cyprus Monday with 21 peace activists, medical supplies intercepted off Strip's shore; passengers say army jammed boat's radio signals.

At around noon Tuesday the Israeli Navy intercepted and took control of a boat that had set sail for the Gaza Strip with three tons of medical supplies, Palestinian sources said, adding that the Navy jammed the boat's radio signals.

The IDF Spokesperson's Office confirmed the report. Israeli military sources said there was no violence after the small ferry, sailing from Cyprus with activists from the US-based Free Gaza Movement, was intercepted off Gaza.

"The vessel, which was sailing under a Greek flag, left Larnaca, Cyprus on Monday en route to Gaza. After it was made clear that the boat was headed for Gaza's shore, it was told that Gaza was under a naval blockade. In light of this and the security hazards in the region, its entrance to Gaza was forbidden," the army said in a statement.

Cynthia McKinney is the kind of “person” that you could throw to the sharks and they’d suddenly become vegetarians.

Just so we don’t pay the ransom money. No SEALS either, might endanger her further.

It would have been awesome if the Israelis had found weapons on the boat and threw her into prison for a decade or so.

“Don’t tell me Al Sharpton was the Skipper?”

Not Likely. No money in it.
Besides, Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson are too busy trying to move in on any money that might be available from Michael Jackson's estate.
Don't forget, even with his owing a half a billion dollars, he still owned the Beatles music library. That is a ton of money and the sharks already smell the blood in the water. Therefore, Jackson & Sharpton took the first flights to Califoney after they heard of Jackos’s death.

I'm trying to get this straight. These "peace activists" are sailing to Gaza with medical supplies.

The Hamasniks in Gaza are lobbing shells, daily, into Israel.

Why aren't they sailing to Haifa, Ashdod or Tel Aviv with medical supplies?

Peace activists, my arse. These people, along with their fellow travellers, Obamao & Carter, are nothing more than apologists for their anti-Semitic brethren in Gaza.

Her and Obama are two peas in the same pod:

Cynthia McKinney (D-Conspiracy)
http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/005/079tehyf.asp
Excerpt:
Appearing in print just months after the September 11 attacks, McKinney's charges couldn't be excused. Nor could her list of campaign donors, which included both terrorist sympathizers like Abdurahman Alamoudi, the former executive director of the American Muslim Council, and apparent actual terrorists like former college professor Sami Al-Arian. Nor could her October 12, 2001, letter to Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal, in which she rebuked New York mayor Rudy Giuliani for returning the prince's post-9/11 “gift” of $10 million and urged bin Talal to donate the funds to “charities outside the mayor's control,” especially those that dealt with “poor blacks who sleep on the street in the shadows of our nation's Capitol.” Giuliani had returned the Saudi’s money because it came with the implicit condition that America “address some of the issues that led to such a criminal [9/11] attack,” among them “its policies in the Middle East,” where “our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek.” To Giuliani, such a statement made excuses for terrorism. This wasn't a problem for McKinney.

That’s because she pulled the exact same stunt in December 2008. Too bad the Israelis didn’t sink the ship last time.

I wish Cynthia McKinney would go to The Sudan and route all of the Janjaweed (the arab muslims) and save all of the black muslims.

That would be a cause that I could support her in!

In the words of her papi, Billy McKinny, "Jews have bought everybody. Jews. J-E-W-S."

She lost her re-election bid after that remark was made by her big-mouth papi.

If they wanted to deliver supplies to the Palestinian's they could have just docked at Haifa, had the normal customs inspections done and then shipped it by truck to Gaza, like all the other supplies the Palestinians get.

Or if they hate Jews so much, they could have docked in Egypt, gone through the normal customs and then shipped it into Gaza through the Rafa crossing. Would not have to offend their eyes with seeing a single Jew.

Heck, if they had done it in Haifa I am sure the Jews would have shipped it for free. Egypt you have to pay a lot more customs.

And if they wanted to do medical supplies they should have delivered it to Haifa, because most of the Arabs have their medical done in Israel hospitals as they dont have to pay for it there, they can just walk out.

But this really is not about medical or supplies is it...

Problem is, corrections would cause them to start burning the cities down, and no politician has the stones to face this. The Constitution says you can’t force someone to work, but it doesn’t say we have to feed them if they won’t work.

When you allow people who don't work, don't pay taxes, can't read or write to vote...this is what you get, Cynthia McKinney:

Strangely enough, people who don't work, don't pay taxes, and can't read or write seem to vote identically to Profound Left Wing Intellectuals. What's up with that?

And how come among all the Black politicians in American life there isn't one "fundie?" Are all American Blacks Profound Left Wing Intellectuals? I mean, if not, a "fundie" would slip through occasionally and be elected, right? But so far as I can tell every single Black politician from the federal to the most local level is an across the board left wing fruitcake.

Not enough speaking in tongues or taking up the serpent?

Actually Sony and MJ “did” own them 50/50.
Sony loaned so much money to MJ that, legally, they could have taken MJ’s percentage. Sony decided that there could be a boycott against them, costing more than that option was worth!
